Carers Scotland encourages carers, employers and groups to find out about our innovative App designed for carers

04 March 2014

jointly module

Jointly is an innovative mobile and online app designed to support carers.

It makes your caring a little easier, less stressful and a lot more organised by making communication and coordination between those who share the care as easy as a text message.


How does Jointly work? 

With Jointly you can create a circle of care for the person you are looking after. Once you have set up your Jointly circle you can start using Jointly to organise care.

You can use it on your own or you can invite other people to join you and share the care. 

Jointly works on iPhone, iPad, Android devices and on most modern web browsers (home computers, laptops, smartphones, tablets, etc.)

Key features

  • Simple, intuitive group communication: Communicate with everyone in your Jointly circle at a touch of a button! Simply post a message or upload an image.
  • Tasks/lists: Keep organised and on top of things by using tasks and task lists. Simply create a task and assign it to any member of your Jointly circle, including yourself, and monitor its status.
  • Calendar: Create date/time specific events and invite anyone in your circle. You can also use the field provided to invite people outside your Jointly circle. 
  • Profile page: Store useful information about the person you are looking after and have it available to access any time at a click of a button!
  • Medications: Use Jointly's Medications feature to keep track of current and past medication of the person you are caring for. You can also upload an image to quickly recognise a medicine. 
  • Contacts list: Jointly allows you to store more useful contacts so that you can access their details anytime, anywhere!
